Default Takeoff from bumpy grass yard?

I have the E Flite Taylorcraft 450. I'd like to fly it at my grandparent's farm where they have a large grassy area. The ground has some bumps and grass is probably mowed to about 2.5 - 3.0 inches.

Are there any special wheels I can order that would allow me to take off under these conditions with a lightweight model like the taylorcraft? I currently have 2.5" inch wheels but when I tested it in my own yard it gets stuck very often and noses over so that the prop hits the ground.

Can you recommend brand and size? Thanks.
